The TT is arguably the most dangerous racing event in the world. Speeds over 200 mph, average speed over 130 mph, 38 miles in 17+ minutes and like Le Mans it's run on city streets. Same course for 100+ years. You can see the level of spectator safety precautions in the video you posted. Kids on stools, right at the edge of the track with bikes going by at 160-200 mph. Nothing to worry about here, they're Brits, their grandparents survived WWII, and this is only a bike race.

If anyone is interested, below is video of the TT fastest lap. It makes those of us who club race on four wheels feel like we're having afternoon tea.
